Sticking with the Wave through our lean years..... this feels really good. I actually expect to win next week, rather than optimistically feel like the team has a chance not to screw it up.

But there is always a little PTSD in there.... after all, didnt Tulsa snatch victory from us last year? When Tulsa scored the second touchdown today, even with our lead, i must admit i felt a little sphincter tightening.....

I want to say Tulsa lead 31-7 at the half last year. According to the Rod Walker story linked above, Tulsa won 52-27.


Previous season 2015. It was the home game after Thanksgiving. They finally played Jordy Joseph and he was awesome, giving us hope right till the end. That was a great loss. And one of my most memorable games to chronicle http://hullabaloohuddle.blogspot.com/2015/11/oh-what-could-have-been.html

Tulsa smacked us during each of the 5 years of Toledo, as well as Scelfo's last year and CJ's first and Fritz's first.
The exceptions were 2013 victory and the 2014 and 2015 fluke losses (missing chip shot FG; 2 pick 6s in the last 4 minutes).

For frick sake stop bellyaching about the past when we did not have a professional coach, and focus on the fact we blew their doors off and if our secondary played better we would have shut them out.

No belly aching' from me- you'll see that I said I was really enjoying this.

But, I can't be the only one who saw the second bomb touchdown pass and have a brief PTSD flashback of prior blown leads.
My rational brain said- we've got a great lead and they can't stop our second string offense, let alone our starters.
The scarred emotional part of my brain had its hair on fire. Enough to cloud my memory on reality.

But it's all good man....it's all good........ namaste........ serenity in....anxiety out..........

Not a belly ache. It's measuring where we've been and savoring the win even more. They were SO overdue for a beat down.

Every time I look at Devon Walker I think about how they were going for a garbage TD's seconds away from the half when the game was already getting out of reach for us.

And their classless fans (every team has them) yelling crap at Tulane fans and parents after games. I went to two or three away games in Tulsa and that was plenty enough for me. It's like mini LSU. And that stupid sideline coach yelling at us in Yulman to Shut the F*ck up about them peeing directly right in front of us. It might just be one game, but it was high time to return the favor. And we did so with class. Glad the only thing they got hurt was their pride.

I want everyone in our conference to be good, and to beat other Non conference teams, so I don't want Tulsa to regress. They obviously need a coaching change or something. My personal opinion at the time they were added was that they were a poor choice for the AAC because they have a garbage market. But I wasn't privy to the reasoning on that choice (ditto Wichita if you ask me). Maybe it was a foothold in the Big 12 footprint? Who knows. Anyways, wish you well Tulsa - hope you get your act together!

Some friends of mine here on the Gulf Coast of Florida went to the Army game...he was a former Army football player. They loved Yulman stadium and could not say enough about how well they were treated by Tulane fans. They contrasted it with LSU and other SEC fans they have encountered. Their only complaint was that the Tulane team was a lot faster than Army's. So, thanks guys...just wanted you to know that it is noticed by the opponents. Let's keep our good reputation. One bad apple can spoil the whole thing.

Watching the trenches via the replay, Cory Dublin had a nice game. He consistently found a body to block and pushed them around. He’s going to be excellent for the next 4 years. What a piece of talent evaluation from our coaches.

I agree after watching the replay as well. I was worried about a freshman starting on the OL but he's done a good job. The announcers even singled him out during the game after a nice block.

Didn't we have a second freshman on the OL as well? I ma be confused. But the line, as a unit had a great game.

Well, whouda thunk it. Tulane finally pays back (partially in my mind) Tulsa. Just put a total whooping on those guys. And the surprise part for me was to be able to follow the game via my wife's I-Pod while travelling from west to east in the wilds of northern Wyoming. It was not play-by-play as one would normally think of, but a synopsis of down, distance and result of each play in the game. The other surprise was Tulane's total dominance of Tulsa, whom Tulane had recently had trouble competing against. Roll Wave.

No, we played 1 freshman, 1 true Soph, 4 redshirt Sophs, 1 Jr., 4 RS Jrs. All of our O-Line can return next year (even Knighton) if we want them to. I think we could see 2-3 defections from upperclassmen that haven't played much, though.

you don't want too much attrition up front. A capable, playable backup is worth a lot. My God, look at the fix LSU is in right now. And that was us last year.

On my fourth watching, I couldn't help but notice that Tulsa had more than several players on what seems to be the CJ lineman diet plan...including an former Tulane recruit Tyranise Stevenson, who had a good bit of playing time.

GSx, the OL under both Toledo and CJ was both big but slow. They also were amazingly nonathletic. I particularly tired of watching our Tackles flail helplessly as a LB or DE raced by them on the way to the QB. And even when asked to run block they seemed incapable of opening gaps for the RB's to run through. I know WF and Atkins realized they had a massive rebuilding effort ahead of them but it seems to be paying off.

I've been meaning to ask. When was the last time we scored a TD on 8 consecutive possessions (going back to the Army game)?

IDK, maybe when Bernie Bierman was coach?

If it actually has occurred, my guess would be LA Tech. Thanksgiving Night 1998. Although my true guess would be never.

Stevenson is big not sloppy looking.

Believe we knelt to kill the clock at the end of the first half, don't know if you want to count that or not.
